Just as expensive as American or GW for no reason. Classes are small but professors are awful, generally felt like I learned nothing while I was in the classroom. Far too many required classes including: 4 semesters of theology with professors that usually don't get enough students registered for their classes. Prepare to get an internship or job, because this school will not give you the experience you need if you are a political science major. There are literally no parties on Fridays and frat "darties" are a major part of the cultural. Food situation is god awful, no vegan options whatsoever. Majority of campus resources aren't anything out of the ordinary save for the medical center and career center which go above and beyond. Dorms are average but rules regarding who you can have over are too antiquated for students of the 21st century. I think of CUA as a place I live in order to be able to intern on the Hill and in the DC Metro area and nothing more than that.
